I ran into this recently, although not as bad as the gentleman in the article but bad none the less. I had also used brake clean prior to welding up 14b diff, the brake clean fumes took my breath away and made me dizzy. Silly me kept at it until the job was finished. After reading this article I can clearly see I was very fortunate to have done more serious damage.
I worked in Dow Chemical and Dow Corning prior to starting my own business and in the back of my mind there is nothing around here that was near what I experienced at those two plants, I couln't be more wrong!
How about we sticky this for a while here in the fab section.
